Synopsis

What's there to say? Gay partners, owners of a transvestite club, have a son engaged to daughter of a respected politician. Introductions over dinner arranged; they pretend to be straight. The set-up for many gags

Notes

La Cage is based on the original Jean Poiret play and the 1978 French film starring Ugo Tognazzi and Michel Serrault. Birdcage, the 1996 American remake starred Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. This version was a bit tamer than the French, but hey, how often do you get to see tough guy Gene Hackman in drag?
